If a renovation option if chosen, where will students go?
If a renovation is chosen, it will be “phased” in order for students to remain in as many classrooms as possible during the construction. Modular classrooms will most likely be used to house displaced students. Both of these issues cost additional money, take significantly more time and the additional costs for swing space are not reimbursable from the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA). Therefore, these additional costs will be taken into the consideration as part of the costs of renovation.
